Articulation Objectives for the Teaching of Foreign Languages in Colorado.
Sandstedt, Lynn A.; And Others
Articulation of materials, methods, and educational objectives of language programs in French, German, Spanish, and Latin focuses on achievement goals in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, writing, culture, and language analysis for levels 1 through 5. The programs emphasize the attainment of language fluency through the audiolingual method of instruction with the objective of increasing awareness of the foreign culture. Course content is defined in terms of grammatical features, basic skills development, and cultural concepts. The section on Spanish enumerates objectives in lists of specific "situations" and "structures" to be mastered. The Latin material distinguishes three different curriculums used in the high schools and colleges of the state. (RL)
